I Want to Blog for a Year!

Well, longer, really. Much, much longer. But getting paid to blog for a year would be a nice start, wouldn’t you say?

All I need is for people to vote for me to win this contest to help me blog on this site for one year, getting paid $80,000 to do so. That would help tremendously with a lot of things.

It’s tough being a stay at home mom. I do earn some money from this site and my others, but not enough. As you may have read on this site, my family had to go down to one car because we couldn’t afford to get the other repaired. You can imagine how much it would help to be able to get out of debt, get a really efficient car and then start saving toward a home. Those are, quite simply, my goals.

I love my sites, most especially this one and my Home with the Kids website. Those two are by far my favorites. They’re each topics I’m passionate about. I’m very picky about what appears on each of those websites because there is just so much of me in them.

If you’d like to help me win, just click on this link to vote for me. I’ll be in complete and utter shock if I do win, but it’s certainly worth a try!

    Had to miss WW today. My computer with all my pictures was in the shop. Just turned out to be a bad power supply, not a hard drive issue (phew!), but I’ve only just now gotten my machine hooked back up. Playing catchup now.

    Hi Stephanie (and stay and home mom)

    The United Nations University is having an event focused on eWaste, in NY at UN Headquarters. This is an initiative partnered with HP, Dell and many other technology companies.

    Would this be useful for you to inform your audience about?

    Below is more information:

    Subject: UNU Briefing: E-Waste – The Underestimated Risk: Curses and Opportunities of an Increasing Problem

    The United Nations University Office at the UN in New York (UNU-ONY), in cooperation with the United Nations University’s Zero Emissions Forum (UNU-ZEF) and the United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS), is organizing a briefing to introduce the initiative “Solving the E-Waste Problem (StEP)”.

    The briefing takes place on Thursday, 19th April 2007, from 2:00pm – 5:00pm in Conference Room 8, UN Headquarters, New York.

    “Solving the E-Waste Problem (StEP)”, a new global public-private initiative, has the following goals:

    • Standardize recycling processes globally, in order to
    • Harvest valuable components in electrical and electronic scrap, “e-scrap”
    • Extending the life of e-scrap products and markets for their reuse
    • Harmonize world legislative and policy approaches to e-scrap

    High-tech manufacturers, such as Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, Dell, Ericsson, Phillips and Cisco Systems and recycling and refurbishing companies join with the UN, governmental, NGO and academic institutions as charter members of the initiative, launched on 7 March 2007.

    Valuable resources in every scrapped product are being trashed in rising volumes worldwide. The purpose of this briefing is to raise awareness and attract public interest about the fact that the unqualified and unscrupulous treatment of e-scrap leads to serious environmental problems, especially in developing countries.

    Presenters at the briefing include:

    • Ruediger Kuehr, United Nations University
    • Klaus Hieronymi, Hewlett Packard and StEP Steering Committee Member
    • Federico Magalini, United Nations University
    • Lutz Scheidt, Technical University Vienna
    • Christian Hagelueken, Umicore Precious Metals Refining
    • Rolf Widmer, Empa Material Science and Technology

    If you would like to attend this briefing, please register here – http://www.ony.unu.edu/unuseminarregistration.shtml by Friday 13th April 2007. If you have questions please email Ms. Delphine Hayim at delphine@ony.unu.edu.
